Fall garden

I love to see the show of sunflowers in my garden in the fall. Close inspection of this flower head reveals a whole tiny garden of blooms.

Quiet Moments

The last few days have been very hectic. My mother is visiting , we have had an unusual amount of company,a wedding on saturday and a family get together on sunday. It has been a whirlwind of friends and family. And although I have had a permanent smile pasted to my face, being a good hostess has left little time for photography. This morning I woke before anyone was up, took my camera into the golden morning , and renewed my connection to nature. How did I get so lucky?

Two in the hand

This pair usually sit on my bathroom windowsill looking out . Today I thought I would set them free for a while.

Harvest Dance

Taken wholly this field of ripe oats was quite a site .Taken individually it reminded me of ballet dancers queuing up at the barre.

Another light show

Last night our neighbours came over on quads for coffee. They left before the lightning and rain started here. I couldnt resist more lightning shots. Of course Mic opened the door again so he and Bear dog could get in out of the storm.

We had a killing frost at the time when the sunflowers in my garden were in bud. I was afraid that I would not see these beautiful yellow blooms. I look forward to seeing the happy faces as big as my head, as they turn their faces to follow the sun.

Back to Artwork

I have been very busy since we came home from the lake. Even though I should be doing my gardening and getting my yard ready for winter, I felt the creative urge... I just had to do something. Inspiration came from the 30s era material that my mom had given me a few years ago. Add to that an old photo that I found in a neat shop on Vancouver Island and a key from my collection. Collage with paper, paint and beeswax to a chunky canvas, and Ta da! Even though I thought that this would be just a bit of fun, I was surprised to find that the primitive nature and the anything goes factor made it even more personal to me.
